The cable that you are referring to is made of ordinary steel and thus is subject to a lot of rust and corrosion. If rusted, it is possible that the cable is simply failing to retract in the cable sheath, even though you have released the emergency park. If you would like this e-brake failure to be inspected and resolved, the recommended service is parking brake cable replacement. The responding certified mechanic will inspect the e-brake system and if the cable is faulty, recommend replacement. If the fault is not in the cable, but instead in another system component, of course the mechanic will alternatively identify the other fault. If you have additional questions, do not hesitate to follow up.
